Assuming you always count the swimsuit-style bottom as "panties", then, yes, on at least one cover (Wonder Woman #63 from 1992), Wonder Woman has not only had more than 25 stars, she's has more than 25 stars visible from the FRONT.

It was all Charles Moulton (pen name of psychologist William Moulton Marston). Here's a brief article touching on his ideas in that regard. A couple of quotes: Through his psychological research, Marston had come to the conclusion that women were naturally superior to men, both morally and in terms of skill. Further, he believed that women’s tendency ...

Lynda Carter's costume from the 1970s Wonder Woman/The New Adventures of Wonder Woman had at least that many stars:

In the Golden Age (from the early forties to the late fifties/early sixties), the character couldn't fly at all. In the Silver Age (late fifties/early sixties to the early eighties), Diana gained the ability to glide on air currents starting in Wonder Woman (vol 1) issue #98, May 1958. Post-Crisis on Infinite Earths (in 1985), Wonder Woman's origin has ...

Like every other place in the comics world, it's "nowhere in particular"; in fact, what we saw in the movie was likely impossible to put anywhere in the real world. My best guess, though, is somewhere in the Mediterranean, specifically the Aegean Sea -- off the east coast of Greece. In the movie, they are pretty careful to never reveal where the island is, ...

Short Answer: Did Batman and Wonder Woman share a more than platonic relationship? And was it canon? - Yes and yes. A brief relationship is hinted at in the DC Animated Series, Justice League Unlimited (You can see an episode featuring that relationship called "This Little Piggy.") They also considered a relationship in a previous continuity, Post-...

Being bound by man hasn't been a weakness of Wonder Woman's for a very long time. That dates back to the very early incarnations of wonder Woman, when she was basically just an excuse to show bondage in the comics. (Her creator was a big proponent of bondage). That rather insane idea was tossed out with the start of the Modern Age in the 80s. Originally, ...

Wonder Woman's ability to bounce bullets off her bracelets requires her to have some superhuman reaction ability; she has to be able to recognize where the bullets are going and move her limbs to parry them with superhuman swiftness. So she does have a degree of superior speed, which also shows up in, for example, her running speed; she often shows the ...

The characterization of Wonder Woman has varied widely over the decades since her creation. In the beginning of the character's existence, she was NOT bulletproof and her bracelets were necessary to deflect bullets. Wonder Woman was created by the American psychologist and writer William Moulton Marston. The character first appeared in All Star Comics #8 ...

It has been snapped on several occasions, notably by Bizarro Superman in "Batman/Superman/WonderWoman : Trinity" and by Rama Khan in "Golden Perfect" She also breaks it (deliberately) in the alt-universe story "Superman : Red Son #2"

She says it right there, the State Of New York. Wonder Woman got licensed to perform marriage in New York state. She tells Clark after... I’m licensed in every state and country that would allow me. It's not difficult in New York, there are just some hoops. To perform marriage in New York state (see Solemnization Of Marriage) the person performing the ...

There are a wide variety of reasons an invisible plane would be useful. But firstly we need to state what may seem obvious; It can go completely invisible, rendering the occupants invisible. In addition to the obvious benefit of having an invisible mode of transport, there are other reasons why her plane is useful; It's ...

Well, there was a scene in an issue of Justice League of America, (vol. 1, from the late 1970s) written by Steve Englehart where Flash, Wonder Woman, and (I think) Batman were in a snowy area in some mountains (maybe the Himalayas). I think it was during his "Manhunters" story, so probably issue 140 or 141. Flash is running in place and rubbing his arms to ...

Aaah, the much awaited question about Wonder Woman! DCAU Certainly less: Justice League Animated Series: 6 Going by symmetry, the count should be 6 or at max 7. Wonder Woman (2009 film): 16-17 6 on front side, 10 on the back side Justice League Doom : 10 Justice League War : 2 Conclusion: less than 25. Comics: it actually varies from ...

Wonder Woman's Invisible Plane/Jet is invisible because in 1941, the idea of an invisible, super-fast, stealth plane was considered to be the most fantastic idea imaginable. She was a character who was over the top, a woman made from clay imbued with powers from the gods, living on a island of all women, who would come to the Man's World with a message of ...

DC Comics' Wonder Woman has, like so many DC characters existed on multiple parallel Earths in the Pre-Crisis multiverse. Her Earth-1 and Earth-2 counterparts resemble the character we recognize today. But on Earth-3, Wonder Woman, like all of the other major heroes of the Justice League, were inverted in their temperament and behavior. They were evil. On ...

Yes, Wonder Woman ages but her rate of aging is never clearly defined. Wonder Woman has never been designated as truly immortal and unaging. Her powers make her extremely durable and able to absorb an amazing amount of punishment. She is just shy of Superman in terms of physical resilience and the equal of Captain Marvel, (since they both acquired their ...

This is JLA vol 1. #62. (Golden Perfect, Part I). Plastic Man disguises himself as a light fixture but gets called on it. Wonder Woman: Just wondering... If my body was the last thing you saw, ever, would it be worth it?"

The only reference that she has made is a vague statement she makes in Dawn of Justice: A hundred years ago I walked away from mankind. From a century of horrors. Man made a world where standing together is impossible. Given the timing, this would mean that Diana "walked away" from mankind almost immediately after the end of World War I. We can only ...

According to the DC wiki, the Amazons are immortal beings that were created to teach men the virtues of peace and love. So, at least in terms of the main comic continuity, the Amazons are indeed immortal. In the terms of the movie, we see ample evidence of Amazon immortality as Diana herself is seen in modern day Paris remembering her days in World War One....

Recent (Post-Crisis) versions of The Lasso of Truth are connected directly to Diana's own innate abilities & "soul", and therefore do not affect Diana as they would others, presumably because Diana always speaks the truth. The second effect of the Lasso, however - that of being an unbreakable bond - CAN affect Diana if used against her. There have been ...

No she wasn't always a demigod nor stated to be... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wonder_Woman Golden Age she was simply a member of a tribe of Amazon Women... Silver Age she was was mortal but got her powers through blessings of the gods. Bronze Age she was molded from clay... Now in Modern Age she was molded from clay and given powers from different ...

In the DCAU - Justice League Unlimited: The Balance Diana and Shayera (Hawk Girl) have this exchange: Shayera Hol: Aren't you cold in that outfit? Wonder Woman: Not really. Shayera Hol: Of course not. The Princess doesn't get cold. The Princess doesn't even sweat in the Fire Pits of Tartarus. Wonder Woman: I do too sweat. Shayera Hol: Please, you ...

During Sacrifice (part of Infinite Crisis) in Wonder Woman #219, she snaps the neck of Maxwell Lord: To be fair to her, he was mind controlling Superman at the time, but she did kill him. I'm not sure how "angry" she was tho.

Given her power level upgrades, at least until the New 52, Wonder Woman SHOULD have been easily bulletproof, because in almost all other ways, she would have been as tough as Superman or Captain Marvel. But like all things comics, there was a great deal of inconsistency on that point. We don't know what the pending Rebirth of the DC Universe will do to her ...

EDIT Something I completely forgot to mention that a buddy reminded is that Wonder Woman's bracelets are also limiting her abilities. So while wearing the Bracelets of Submission her abilities are already suppressed. So whether or not she wants to hold back, while wearing them she already is... TLDR Wonder Woman is a God from the get-go in the DC Extended ...

This is Wonder Woman #155 "I Married a Monster!" in which Wonder Woman is depicted (on the cover) marrying Mr. Monster She was genuinely persuaded to marry him after he defies the Amazonian Army and shields her from falling rubble with his own body, proving his worthiness as a potential husband. But eventually he ends up...

The concept of continuity has become increasingly fluid of late with Grant Morrison's Multiversity which deems Earth-10 as, likely, to be the setting of Mark Millar's "Red Son", wherein Wonder Woman is subdued with her own lasso by Batman to serve as bait for the Soviet Superman. Wonder Woman breaks her bonds (and accordingly causes a shock to her own ...
